“Very French!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We enjoyed lunch at the cafe. The music, the decor, the menu, and the posters were very francophil. Service was good as well as the food.

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We visited Café Saint-Amand in the early evening on a Wednesday and were the only people in the restaurant. We were disappointed to find they did not serve alcohol, but instead you can bring your own into the restaurant. If wine, they will uncork it for you and service. Had we known this we would have brought a bottle with us. Ah well, live and learn. (This was a new trend for us, being from the Midwest, we had never encountered this before.)

We ordered the warm brie cheese (very good), the quiche du jour and chicken cordon blue. The meal was delicious. There was another party that came in when we were just about finished, so maybe the evening was just getting started for others. Overall, a very pleasant and delicious dining experience.

It did seem there were a lot of staff on duty (the chef, hostess, and 3 waitresses) and they didn't have much to do. Maybe they were waiting for the crowd to come in, but could have been a bit more discrete with their conversation (not within earshot of customers).

“Paris in PA???”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Drove by this little place in the afternoon and decided to try it for breakfast the next morning. We were the first customers to arrive after it opened, and sat at a table in the front window. A little french music in the background, the Eiffel Tower painted on the wall, and some decidedly non-traditional menu choices (Brioche French Toast and the French version of Eggs Benedict whose exact name I can't remember) and the mood was complete. The food was good, the prices were fair, and I think we would try it again if returning to Gettysburg. It's a nice change from the typical fair in what is considered a tourist town.

“Gettysburg's French Restaurant (yum-yum)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Gettysburg is having 150th anniversary going on now. This is a great restaurant on the corner, easy to find in town. This restaurant has a very good menu for everyone in your party. They serve waffles until 4pm. The Baies et de creme (Berries and creme crepe) is soooooooo good. The servers act like they love their job, so that means good service. Soft drinks, tea, and milk are only 1.35, unlimited. Which is a great perk when you are eating out, I always appreciate restaurants that have fair pricing. They are in a tourist area and could be obnoxious and charge 5.00 for these drinks but they don't. That always gains points for me, but the Gaufre Beige (Belgian Waffle) is soo good with the fruit and cream. Check this out, you will be hooked.

“BYOB, and I don't suggest PA wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Nearly empty when we visited on Saturday night. My husband's steak au poive was more expensive than my steak with bleu cheese, and much smaller (but both excellent). My son's "child's" ham and cheese crepe was enormous and deliceuse! Even though there was one other table we had to flag the server and she seemed annoyed to be there. I hate when cleaning chemicals are sprayed on the table next to me and my food tastes like windex. For the prices, they could upgrade the paper goods for dinner service.
